Often we refer to the Four Noble Truths as foundational principles of Buddha’s teaching. This talk is about the Five Remembrances, another fundamental teaching of the Buddha that we can work with as a practice on a daily basis. They are reminders about the inescapability of old age, sickness, death, change and the experience of loss. How can we accept these reminders with equanimity and how can they turn us to compassion and liberation? Everyone is welcome.
